Together with Singapore Management University (SMU) and Mahidol University (MU), Universiti Malaya (UM) hosted the 3rd ASEAN University Network Technology Enhanced Personalised Learning (AUN-TEPL) online symposium on 25th May 2022.

The event brought together more than 200 like-minded educators from universities in the ASEAN region to share and discuss best practices in the use of technology to bring about personalised learning and to seek opportunities to collaborate in inter-university projects.

The symposium featured keynote speaker, Professor Dr. Zoraini Wati Abas, who presented the topic “Developing Skilled Netizens for Lifelong Learning”. Other presenters at the symposium contributed to a wide spectrum of topics related to personalised learning enhanced by technology, such as in the areas of fostering student engagement, designing and implementing blended learning courses, gamification, the use of virtual reality and many more.

The highlight of the event was a panel discussion on the lessons learned and ways in forging ahead in supporting the implementation of personalised learning in institutions of higher learning.
The symposium was launched with the opening address by the Vice-Chancellor of Universiti Malaya, Professor Dato' Ir. Dr. Mohd. Hamdi Abd. Shukor. He shared that universities should not only be looking at transitioning physical classes to online when incorporating technology-enhanced personalised learning. Instead, universities should also explore deeply into the art of harnessing the right education tools in classroom management and content delivery to bring about personalised learning. He feels that by achieving this, educators can form a nurturing academic community and create a better learning environment for students.
